T minus 8 days until my surgery. I have the pre-surgery screening tomorrow, and think I should pass with flying colors.
I did have a scare today. I woke up and came downstairs. I sat in my chair, and I felt that same pain that hit me almost 2 months ago. L4 and L5 were screaming at me. I broke my rule and took a pain pill during the day, right after I got to work, since it would be 8 hours before I would drive.
The good news is that the pain subsided, but I've got more numbness on the top of my foot. I am so ready for next Tuesday, but still scared to death. I've been at my new job since Sept. 30th, and am nervous about being away for so long.
I did schedule a deep tissue massage for this Friday. Wanted to treat myself before I went under the knife.
Anyone else get these jitters?
